“For players like Rafa or me, being number 2 or number 5 isn’t life-changing. What is life-changing is being number 1, as both of us has in the past. Being among the favourites is not important, the important thing is to believe that you are ready to win.
There will never be a rivalry like ours. Not even that between Borg and McEnroe, despite their different personalities and one being left-handed and the other right-handed. Murray and Djokovic are very similar. Rafa and I are extreme opposites and that’s what the fans like so much. Our rivalry isn’t over, I’m sure it will be back, I miss it”, said Roger Federer.
